Gordons Welcomes Next Generation to the Firm

Thursday 12th October 2017

Gordons has welcomed the next generation to the firm, with the appointment of two new apprentices and four trainees.

Graduates, Adrian Webb, Ben McGilvray, Oliver Allanach and Nick Wilcock have started training contracts, initially joining the employment, defendant personal injury, private client and property litigation teams, respectively. The trainees will now undertake four six-month seats in various Gordons departments.

Eleanor Tordoff and Lauren Wurzal have joined the firm as part of Gordons’ multiple-award winning apprenticeship scheme, which was the first of its kind when it was launched in 2011 and celebrated its first graduate to qualify in February 2017.

Tordoff and Wurzal will train as chartered legal executives, through the combination of on-the-job experience and academic study. Gordons will pay their salaries and course fees, meaning that they will not accumulate any student debt.

Gordons partner John Holden said: “As always, competition for apprenticeships and training contracts has been fierce and we are pleased to welcome the next generation of legal talent to the firm.

“We look forward to helping these talented, young people build their careers in the Law and we are excited to see what the future holds for them.”
